, though, alex, was susan collins basically endorsing john kerry. that has been all the chatter from republicans. john kerry would sail through here. some democrats say, the reason why they have the chatter about john kerry, they want to get scott brown elected in a special election. if john kerry is nominated they could lose a senate seat. a lot of other democrats that say look, president obama should not waste his political capital on susan rice. we have a fiscal cliff, we want to do immigration reform. why have this nasty fight. john kerry has been a loyal deputy to president obama. let him get through here. john kerry gave him the speaking role at the '04 convention, john kerry endorsed him after he lost new hampshire in 2008. john kerry has been loyal. it's his turn. that's the interesting subplot along with the gop attacks on susan rice, not only for how she dealt with benghazi but now susan collins a moderate opening up about her time in the clinton administration back in the late '90s. >> intrigue on capitol hill, mckay. i thought it was because the gop loved john kerry, thou
is going to have a pretty easy sail through the confirmation, john kerry or somebody like that. it's unusual somebody we don't know is going to be nominated is working the u.s. senate this hard. is this an ultimate political genius move by the obama white house? are they thinking they're going to take this into a fight for senate confirmation? >> day two of this pr campaign to face the critics on the hill. senator corker is who we're going to have the opportunity to -- rice will have the opportunity to meet with him at noon. in advance of today's meeting, "she always delivers the party line, the company line, whatever the talking points are." is this an example, though, of rice facing critics -- explain the type of diplomacy she would need to display if she's going to go into negotiations with china? it's different than, you know, facing your foes on the hill when you're facing those from a different country. >> right. i think frankly it's inexplicable on the republican side. i do think this is a prelude probably to rice being nominated. and i really don't see how the republicans w
will be dominated. >> i -- i think she will be nominated. abc correspondent, jake tapper. john kerry may be the alternative pick for secretary of state. but is he also a teen idol? viewfinder is coming up next. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks or jumping into the market he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense from td ameritrade. >> eliot: coming up, the less fortunate need our help. and some think that includes goldman sachs. but first, the empire state building light show, the john kerry fan club and the winners and losers in the middle east. when it doesn't fit anywhere else, we put it in the viewfinder. >> broadway wasn't the only place to catch a good show last night. the empire state building put on its first ever light show.
rights issues than john kerry would be. john kerry, if he were nominated for secretary of state, would probably have an easier time through the senate, especially now, but also because the senators there are his colleagues. >> amanda, thanks very much. see you soon. >> thank you. >> this hour the president meets with mexico's president-elect, and they're taking immigration. could we be on the verge of major reform? the spin cycle is next, and we roll on for tuesday, november 27th.

that are in play here, that is senator john kerry and susan rice. there's no question about it she's qualified. however, i'll remind you and the audience that senators do have a constitutional role in this, and that is to advise and consent. the question is whether or not she's able to alleviate the concerns to pass confirmation. >> i'm not sure we have a little bit of a delay with robert there, but i apologize for that. but i spoke with jeanne shaheen a short time ago. and here's what she had to say about some of the republican critics of susan rice. >> it's unfortunate that much of that discussion has gotten so personal. she does need to get a fair hearing. i'm hopeful senator mccain is a patriot, i think he'll give her a fair hearing. i certainly think that of my colleague from new hampshire, senator ayotte and of lindsey graham. >> do you think she'll get a fair hearing? how tough will the questioning be? >> well, look, it seems clear there are some republicans that want to make an issue out of this. the unfortunate part for republicans, they don't have the votes. robert's right, they do h
for the white house and the fact she also in response to another reporter's question said she thought john kerry who was one of the senators in the club here who has been very public about wanting the job, would sail through is another interesting wrinkle in the drama going on. >> i heard your followup question as well which was intriguing that the chairman of her committee joe lieberman the independent who has been seemingly very moderate on this has emerged to say susan rice would be a terrific candidate. i'm not sure if those were his words but essentially a great candidate. qualify her reactions and characterize whether you expected that reaction from senator collins. >> reporter: it's interesting because the point i was trying to make is that the two of them, there is almost no partisanship between the democrat and republican who are on that committee joe lieberman and susan collins. they pretty much go after things in a joint way. it's the way they operate, where they are in the political spectrum and the nature of their committee on homeland security. why is it significant? democrats have
, if the president can't appoint susan rice, then he would have to appoint john kerry and that would open up a massachusetts senate seat for scott brown. so it could all be a way of getting back another republican in the united states senate. don't know for sure. just sayin'. all right. we'll look into that and a whole lot more here but first standing by with today's current news update, lisa ferguson in los angeles. hi lisa. take it away. >> hey bill, thanks. good morning everyone. as president heads to meet with leaders of the business world this afternoon politico is reporting that john boehner and his leadership team are making plans to meet with some of these very same executives. now the irony here is that obama and boehner still have no plans to meet themselves face-to-face. the two did meet before congress' thanksgiving recess along with the other two three members of the house and the senate. they had plans to meet again this week but still nothing is scheduled. it is not a great sign and shows that the two groups a
as secretary of state. and, of course, waiting in the wings, john kerry, who we understand the white house will nominate to be defense secretary. i'm told he would accept that post even though he would prefer to be secretary of state. we've got to go but thank you very much. chris cizilla, kelly o'donnell. joining me now is ambassador nicolas burns, former undersecretary of state and ambassador to nato, now with the john f. kennedy school of government at harvard. nick we've been through this before, seen confirmation hearings go off kilter. this is not getting a great start. >> and it's a shame, andrea, because i think these charges against ambassador rice, i don't find convincing. she was simply representing the viewpoint of an entire administration and many of us have been in positions of defending administration's republican and democrat in the past, i have, where you're not out there, you know, just trumpeting your own personal views. you're relying on a collective judgment made ats the state department, the white house, the cia and other places, and she was merely the person represen
over. i don't think that john kerry is really on everyone's a list anyway and they might be saying are we better off as a nation. >> gretchen: y are right. she is putting those top three republicans in a box in the meeting today. it will be difficult for them to come out now and criticize her, she is the one who offered the olive branch to come and have the meeting with them. it is nothing to do with whether or not she should be secretary of state. but the optics of this and work in her favor in a huge way today. >> steve: generally before somebody is nominated for a big job they go talk to the opposite party. it could be an explanation of why she would being up to capitol hill with mike morell. i said that because this guy's department told me to say that? >> brian: we know the cia's director said someone edited my talking points. it is more than just her side of the story. >> we would be well served to have one group of senators from all of the relative committees interview the witness and dod and department of state and cia should be interviewed so we can get the same story and
prefer john kerry, freeing up space for scott brown. susan rice has degrees from stanford and oxford. patty, republican caller. caller: i wonder if this gentleman is aware that cnn had no problem going into this embassy to find documents. it was deliberate that did not send in the fbi to investigate. this was right before an election, and this gentleman is not sure why it took so long? also, c-span should have done some in depth shows before the election. i am disappointed in how you protected president obama in comparison to the-shows when president bush was president. part of the problem in ameritech is -- in america is the media should put under their caption white house stenographer. there was also a laser with where the attacks were, and that is why he got killed. he was an absolute hero. guest: there is concern with talking points in the mainstream media, as it is called, but in my defense i have written very critical things about barack obama and his presidency over the last three years, and we try our best to be even-handed. host: rob. manassas, virginia. caller: what has bef
